RTS has launched the Odin Omneo digital intercom matrix, the latest in an ongoing programme of IP-focused products that included the Roameo DECT-based wireless system and KP-Series keypanels.

RTS Odin OmneoOdin is a compact single-height rackmount unit package that offers technology with analogue connectivity. Where previous-generation digital matrix products were significantly larger and more costly to own and operate, Odin’s feature set and form factor are designed to make a professional matrix solution more accessible and easier to use than ever before, opening up the benefits of IP-based communications for wide range of new markets and users of all levels.

In keeping with RTS’ policy of backwards compatibility, Odin can integrate into the most sophisticated, large-scale intercom operations, extending the value of the initial investment, while also providing a path for system expansion for smaller users who want to upgrade existing RTS systems to the latest technologies.

With connectors for Omneo IP technology, analogue two-wire and four-wire, Odin supports IP-based Roameo wireless systems and KP-Series keypanels, and analogue RTS legacy keypanels. Dante-enabled Omneo is standard on RJ-45 connectors or is available using optional optical fibre-optic connectors. Users can define ports to use any of the available connector types and, as capacity needs evolve, a single Odin can be expanded from the basic 16 ports to a maximum of 128 ports. Up to eight Odin units can be connected via an optical Inter-Frame Link to create a single matrix with up to 1024 ports. Additional features include redundant power supplies and five cooling fans (two of which are redundant). The unit’s energy-efficient design uses less than 50W of power, minimising operating costs.

The front panel has a colour graphical user interface based on icons to support the most common setup and configuration tasks. The AZedit and IPedit software applications have been updated to support Odin for more complex configuration tasks.

Odin combines the functionality of multiple RTS technologies into one package, providing the capacity of two OMI-64 cards (64-ports each), up to 128 channels of digital audio over IP in Omneo format, fully compatible with Dante and AES67; connections for up to 16 analogue keypanels ; inter-Frame-Link connectivity for linking multiple frames together; a powerful master controller; built-in connectors for analogue two-wire partyline; and a redundant power supply for an extra layer of protection against failure.

Key features:

  • 1U-high form factor makes Odin for OB vans and applications where space is at a premium.
  • Built-in Dante-enabled, AES67/AES70-compatible Omneo technology.
  • Single unit scalable from 16 to 128 ports.
  • Port expansion via software upgrade; no additional hardware required.
  • Up to eight units can be optically interconnected for a total of 1,024 ports.
  • Colour display with icon-based graphical user interface.
  • Five cooling fans (two of which are redundant).
  • Two XLR-connectors for wired partyline in one of three user-selectable formats.
  • Energy-efficient design.
